Believe In the G: 100 Gifts. 48 Hours. February 15-16, 2017

Believe in the G is a 48-hour giving challenge during which our alumni family can invest in the future of UNCG. It's a time to come together and celebrate what makes our community great: loyalty, generosity, innovation and a commitment to lifelong learning for people from all walks of life. This year, Believe in the G is February 15-16, and there are three big ways that alumni can participate: wear blue and gold, spread the word on social media using the hashtag #BelieveInTheG and make a gift online. Our goal is 1,000 gifts by midnight on February 16, and we'll be updating our progress toward that goal at Believe in the GTo mail a gift in early, send it to: University Advancement Services, PO Box 26170, Greensboro NC 27402. Be sure to put "Believe in the G" in the memo line of the check so that we can count it toward our goal. Make a gift online today.
